It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

    Do the prime rib at 250* until about 10 * below your desired finish. If you are big on searing you can take it off, open the vents and do a quick sear at 500* plus. Prime rib is always my daughter's request too but she wants it so she can have Yorkshire pudding.

    Haven't tried ersters before.  Little Steven has you covered on the prime rib.  It's an easy cook.  IMO- the only thing to watch out for is not to over cook it.  If you go with a reverse sear like Steven described- let the meat rest first so the temp stops rising, then throw it on.  

    Here is another useful link that describes :

    This is another video from Dr BBQ that describes a simple "cook it until it is done" process:

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I thought I saw a recipe for Dragos grilled oysters somewhere. Its a resto in NOLA and their oysters are incredible. I'll post a link if I can find it.
